An anecdote

We had the last of the Tractatus reading group meetings on Friday. For our final session, Warren Goldfarb read two short papers on the notion of showing and discussed them with us. I want to write up something about that, but I wanted to mention an anecdote he opened with. He said that he hadn't published much of his stuff on the Tractatus. He then said that at one of his talks he was introduced as, "Warren Goldfarb, whose unpublished work on the Tractatus are de rigueur for any serious student of that work." I found that amusing. Hopefully I will get to the substantive post later tonight or tomorrow.
